A Vintage Video of a Complete 1959 Ballgame Between the Dodgers and Cardinals at the Coliseum

So, are you missing Baseball yet? 

I know I am.  That's why when I ran into this vintage video on youtube featuring a COMPLETE GAME from 1959, I had to sit down and watch it.  (It is a little over 50 minutes long- no commercials)  They are playing at the LA Coliseum.  Unfortunately, Vin Scully is not announcing the game.  Instead, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Brickhouse calls it. 

The game is from Saturday, July 25, 1969, and Dodger pitcher Roger Craig faces off against Larry Jackson.  31,105 fans were in attendance.  The Dodgers were 2.5 games behind the Giants at the time.  I won't tell you the outcome, but if you want to spoil things check out the boxscore via Baseball Reference.
